Dutch tennis player Michaella Krajicek's joy at winning on home grass was easily surpassed when her boyfriend stepped on court and dropped down on one knee straight after her Den Bosch Open first-round victory.

Krajicek, half sister to 1996 Wimbledon champion Richard Krajicek, hit 11 aces to beat Jana Cepelova 6-3 4-6 6-1 in the Wimbledon warm-up tournament but her heart was soon beating even faster.

German doubles specialist Martin Emmrich stepped onto the court and got down on one knee.

Krajicek says it was a huge surprise, but they met there a year ago and she thinks it's such a very special place to do it.
